Whether your dad is an outdoor or indoor grilling aficionado, one of these five fantastic gifts will satisfy his grill-loving heart. From grill pans to top-rated stand-alones, your dad will never ask for anything again (besides one of those tacky aprons they all seem to wear).
Dual temp heat and alarm thermometer

If your dad is an apartment or condo dweller, give him the gift of indoor grilling with this Cuisinart Griddler Combo. Instead of a standard Panini maker, this has two separate nonstick grill and griddle plates with separate temperature controls, giving you the chance to make eggs and bacon at the same time or chicken and steaks for eight right on your counter! The pans are completely dishwasher safe, so clean up is just as easy as cooking. Starts at $100.
Weber Spirit Gas Grill
This is one grill you'll be tempted to steal from dear ol' dad! The outdoor Weber Spirit Gas Grill, rated the number one grill for 2013 by Good Housekeeping, comes with three separate burners and more than 529 square inches of primary grilling space. The cast iron cook space is porcelain enameled, making it easy to grill and even easier to clean up. Plus, with two stainless steel tool hooks, Dad can have all of his handy gadgets right near him. Starts at $500.

Not enough counter space in Dad's smaller apartment or town home? Give him one of these amazing Calphalon grill pans! Like an electric Panini maker, this nonstick grill pan and press allows you to cook both sides of the food at the same time without flipping. The perfect nonstick surface means Dad can watch his cholesterol by grilling with little to no added fats, like oils and butter. If that's not enough, the whole pan and press is dishwasher safe! From $100.
Hot Dog Griller
Give the gift of the perfectly plump ballpark hot dog that can be made at home with this hot dog and bratwurst griller. This fun gift makes cooking up to five dogs at a time a complete breeze. The wooden handle makes for easy removal and the spinning steel compartments cook each hot dog and bratwurst evenly. Pair this with a set of hot dog forks and prongs for easy cooking and eating. From $25.
